Pizzeria via Montenapoleone: The Best Italian Pizza in Town in just 5 minutes


Romana Pizza (P270+). Tomato, Anchovies, Capers, Olives, Mozzarella, Oregano, Olive Oil

This pizzeria has a canteen feel of Amici de Don Bosco, the pizzas are wood fire oven cooked, and owned by an Italian. Finally, another authentic Italian pizzeria in town and it boasts of perfect pizzas in only 5 minutes because they use a high heat imported Italian oven. There is no such thing as crunchy thin crust, or thick crust for Italian pizzas — so expect a soft, chewy and thin crust pizza. The pizzas are great and remind me of Amici de Don Bosco pizza. I noticed that there are only a few burned portions and this is a good indication of how well they cooked the pizza.

As for the pasta, it tasted ordinary. You should definitely leave room for the gelato dessert! It is a simple pizzeria which serves pizza and pasta:

SINGAPORE FOOD TRIP: Makan Food that did not make the cut


1. Fish Head Curry — My wife wanted to try this out and so we did. It was just okay, nothing to rave about or maybe we just had too much of everything that night. The huge snapper head served was enough for the three of us but with the other food on the table, it was way too much. There was so much fish meat that i thought it was an endless eating. Cooked in a spicy, tangy, tamarind curry with okra and tomatoes.

SINGAPORE FOOD TRIP: Makan Food Trip – My Top 10 Favorites!

I always dread going to Singapore because I thought the place is so boring and the food is uninspired. I was only exposed to my usual routine of hotel to office and eating in Orchard Road, Clark / Boat Quay, or Suntec City Malls, the usual tourist route. Boy, was I dead wrong.

Singapore is a foodie haven! My taste palette just got expanded when I tasted the best of Singapore Makan delights. In fact, Singaporeans are known for their 24-hour passion for makan — the malay word for “food” or “eat”. Armed with a Uniquely Singapore Makan Delights brochure, a popular book called Makan Sutra (singapore makan bible), and a singapore local foodie, my family went on a makan food trip in Singapore. I now respect and appreciate Singaporeans passion for food and as they say, the best food is found along the streets. That I would have to agree 100%!

Here is my top 10 Makan Favorites! For those who will have a chance to go visit Singapore, you have to seek out these Makan Delights! Just an additional tip if you are going on a Makan food trip: a) bring your own tissue/ water and, b) you can say no to the wet towels and peanuts which usually comes with a fee.


1. Bak Kuh Teh — This is the Singapore/ Malaysia version of our Bulalo. There are two versions the one with clear, aromatic broth that is full of garlic and white pepper and the one with a dark broth full of Chinese herbs that is good for your health. I like the latter one (dark broth) and it is usually served with white rice, yu tiao (chinese fried dough fritters), sliced red chillies in soy sauce, and a pot of Chinese tea.
